Neighbors can be the most effective advocates for safe streets in communities. The assets community members bring can make all the difference when it comes to determining policy and securing resources. It is imperative that there are deliberate spaces for leaders to share tools and enrich knowledge.
That's why we created the Community Advocates Network: to provide the deliberate space needed for neighborhood transportation leaders to connect, share information, and learn from each other, with the intent of transferring gained knowledge to the communities they serve.
Our goal is to develop, engage, and inform community advocates for safe streets by creating a sustainable and effective network of advocates from neighborhoods in every City Council district, prioritizing communities in the High Injury Network.
We support this network by providing regular virtual meeting spaces, to provide information and resources pertinent to your work, and to facilitate a critical space for community interactions.
